General COVID Guidelines for Cornerstone Miami 

As we prepare for our Family Homecoming, please remember to take a deep breath, have fun, and remember, the goal is to worship God. This homecoming will feel a little different and that’s ok. In light of that, we are asking that we think and act as a family and do what’s best for the family. 

Here are some family guidelines that we are asking everyone to participate in:

 

1.         BYOM! (Bring your own mask) Masks will be required for everyone. If you forget, a mask will be provided for you at the entryway. 

2.        We knew you were coming, so hand sanitizing stations will be spaced around the building for your use.

3.         Please respect each other’s personal space as we want to honor each other and care for the most vulnerable.  

4.        If you’re not feeling well, please worship from home. Remember, Cornerstone Miami Online is still the safest way to gather and minimize your exposure to COVID-19.
